Hey Guys & Girls,
How are you all today? I am finally able to upload my simple makeup of the day that I rocked during the weekend….yay!
Most people know me to always rock a bold lip, I lovvveee a gorgeous statement lip any day, anytime. A while back I showed a haul video on my youtube channel (subscribe for free
) showcasing some LIP GLAZES I bought from LA GIRL cosmetics, You can click here
to watch the haul. I finally decided to burst out the most daring colour out of the bunch, COY.
COY is a gorgeous purple shade with a pinky/magenta undertone, I absolutely love the shade and I love the formula even more. The lip glazes are so easy to apply, it is a bit runny when it comes out of the tube so make sure you apply it with a lip brush.
Here she is in all of her glory….

I really wanted to define the edges of my lips really subtly so I reached for my oldy but goody jumbo lip pencil from BLACKUP cosmetics in purple. These jumbo pencils come with a heap load of product in them, the head is a sharpener and they are very soft and gentle on the lips. You can definitely wear it on its own as a lipstick.

I absolutely love how it came out, the lip glaze has a minty fresh feel that hydrated my lips. The colour payoff is amazing and the product stayed on my lips all day, even after eating. The best part about this product is that it costs me only 2pounds (beautyjoint.com). This is definitely one of my go to fall/winter lip products, you can also pair this glaze with Nightmoth lip pencil from Mac cosmetics or any dark lip pencil that you own.

With regards to the rest of my face I decided to keep my makeup very minimal and more manageable but still healthy looking and glowing, I have a set routine I follow when I need to be out of the house ASAP!
If you would like to see my GOTO mummy on the go makeup tutorial you can watch the video below, all the products I used are all listed in the video.
The best part about having a simple base is the fact that you can switch up the products when you feel like it. You can make it more intense or even simplify the look even more. I decided to change my lid and cheek colour to more of a highlight/blush because I wanted to look more awake and less vampy.
I reached for my new favourite blush that can also be used as a Highlighter from MILANI cosmetics called “Luminoso”. It is a great duo use product as you can use it as a lid/inner tear duct colour, a blush colour and even as a highlight colour. If you are based in the UK, you can buy MILANI blushes from Amazon.co.uk
The packaging of this blush is so pretty, it is a gold compact with a mirror, a brush and tons of product to play with.
Thats it guys, that was the FACE OF THE DAY, please let me know if you will be trying out any of the products mentioned above and if it works well for you. Till next time then, Have a blessed week ahead and remember “God doesn’t like Ugly so do something nice for someone today”
